Know the Code - Skiing and Snowboarding Safety

Skier Responsibility Code
1. Always stay in control and be able to stop or avoid other people or objects. 
2. People ahead of you have the right of way. It is your responsibility to avoid them. 
3. You must not stop where you obstruct a trail or are not visible from above. 
4. Whenever starting downhill or merging into a trail, look uphill and yield to others.
5. Always use devices to help prevent runaway equipment. 
6. Observe all posted signs and warnings. Keep off closed trails and out of closed areas. 
7. Prior to using any lift, you must have the knowledge and ability to load, ride and unload safely. 
8. Inverted aerials are not recommended except in events and terrain park.

10. Be safety conscious.
11. If you are involved in a collision with another skier/boarder you must stay at the scene until ski patrol arrives. 

Know The Code. It's Your Responsibility


Smart Style
The National Ski Area Association and Burton Snowboards have developed the "Smart Style" Freestyle Terrain Safety initiative, a cooperative effort to continue the proper use and progression of freestyle terrain at mountain resorts.

1. MAKE A PLAN
Every time you use freestyle terrain, make a plan for each feature you want to use. Your speed, approach and take off will directly affect your maneuver and landing.
2. LOOK BEFORE YOU LEAP
Scope around the jumps first, not over them. Know your landings are clear and clear yourself out of the landing area.
3. EASY STYLE IT
Start small and work your way up. (Inverted aerials not recommended except in events & terrain park).
4. RESPECT GETS RESPECT
From the lift line through the park.

Trail Signage
Know the signs of the international trail marking system. They explain the degree and difficulty for each trail. 

     
Easiest More Difficult  Most Difficult  Expert Only  Freestyle Terrain

The system of difficulty markers is relative and only valid at this area. This system is not necessarily the same as a similarly rated trail at another ski area. Skiers/boarders should begin with the easiest trails regardless of ability level, until familiar with the trails at the area. During periods of low visibility or other inclement weather and snow conditions, the degree of difficulty of the ski/snowboard run my change. Know your ability level and stay within it.

Inherent Risk of Skiing
Under Alaska law, the risk of an injury to person or property resulting from any of the inherent dangers and risks of skiing rests with the skier. Inherent dangers and risks of skiing include changing weather conditions; existing and changing snow conditions; bare spots; rocks, stumps and trees; collisions with natural objects, man-made objects, or other skiers; variations in terrain; and the failure of skiers to ski within thier own abilities. If you are involved in a collision with another skier/boarder you must stay at the scene until ski patrol arrives. 

 
Caution/Danger  Boundary Closed  Slow Zone

Be advised that all poles, flags, fencing, signage and padding on equipment or objects or other forms of marking devices are used by the area to inform you of the prescence or location of a potential obstacle or hazard. These markers are no guarantee of your safety and will not protect you from injury. A rope line made up of bamboo and rope, with no closed signs, indicates a hazard behind the line and can be considered a warning rope.

Please observe posted SLOW ZONE areas by maintaining a speed no faster than the general flow of traffic. Fast and aggressive skiing/boarding will result in the loss of skiing privileges.
